"The Wall Street crowd wants us to think of education in terms of means – which usually means finding ways to spend less – rather than ends.  But when it comes to education, the “ends” are our children. And the means we choose for them, either consciously or through indifference, reveal who we really are as a people."

Infographic: The Evolution of the Superman Logo From 1938 To Now | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

While our new 2013 Superman looks as handsome and buff as ever, though, the symbol on his chest looks kind of different from the last time we saw him. Of course, that symbol has changed a lot in 75 years.

Tamra Dollar's curator insight, July 19, 2013 5:35 PM

I also like that the ePortfolio can follow the student and allows each teacher to see prior work writing samples to get an authentic look at where the student is performing. It is a built in "needs assessment!"
